Improving Productivity and Market Access for Farmers in Guatemala

April 6, 2023

Counterpart International’s USDA-funded Food for Progress program is working to improve productivity and expand market access for rural agricultural farmers in Guatemala’s Western Highlands. The program works to strengthen the capacity of Guatemala’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food, as well as community leaders benefiting from more than 47,000 coffee, vegetables, and minor species producers. Food for Progress helps rural farmers with obtaining supplies, equipment, and services for production, and agricultural trade to improve access to market opportunities.
